Panic Attacks? The Top 5 Reasons Behind Stress

Panic Attacks? The Top 5 Reasons Behind Stress

by Dr Emma Gray - 31st October, 2012

Stress is a part of life. It can manifest itself in different ways, depending on your situation. Knowing the key causes of stress and panic attacks may help you avoid some effects and be healthier. As one of the leading firms offering counselling in Clapham, we provide you the probable reasons behind your stress.
Financial Problems
Money is the number one source of stress nowadays. The weight of debts, credit card payments, and pending mortgage instalments can be stressful when you do not have enough money. Discuss the cause of your stress with professionals to help you relieve stress.
Workplace Stress
Thinking about your next promotion might make you feel anxious, causing you to have sleepless nights. Reaching your career goals, adapting to changes in the organization, or thinking of losing your job can make you feel anxious. A good support of friends and family can ease your work troubles and help you see things in a different way. Discuss your issues with your friends to help find solutions to your problems.
Personal Relationships
Personal relationships are a common cause of stress. Worrying about your children or arguing with your spouse can be the reason behind your stress. Take control and find a solution to your problem by seeking the help of psychologists in your area.
Illnesses are significant causes of stress. Maintaining good health and leading a healthy lifestyle can help you relieve stress.
The annoyances and irritations you encounter daily can be the biggest sources of your anxiety. Problems in your work and family life are some of the strains you experience each day. Get counselling services to cope with situations that trigger your problem.
There is always a solution to a problem. Neglecting your situation and doing nothing will only make your problem worse. Identify the cause of your stress. Get Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), one of the best stress management programmes, to evaluate your main stressors and provide you with resources to deal with them. We are doctors of clinical psychology and counselling psychologists specialising in CBT in London and other places in the U.K. Read our CBT page to know more about the therapy.

I am often the first person with whom my patients share significant and intimate thoughts and memories; I never take that privileged position for granted nor the opportunity to help someone to feel better about themselves and discover a more fulfilling life. One of my colleagues once described me as a natural psychologist; I guess she was alluding to the fact that I feel at ease being a therapist, I can empathise with people’s distress and discomfort but don’t feel overwhelmed by it, I can understand their problem and know how to help, it has always just felt like what I should be doing.
